Wings Over America Double Special XL Volume 1 THIS SPECIAL HAS 180 PAGES! EDITORIAL People tend to forget that Paul McCartney – with or without ‘wings’ – was one of the best-selling acts of the 1970s.

EDITORIAL I remember starting out listening to the Beatles in my early teens when I borrowed a 90-minute cassette from my sister with the 1962 – 1966 ‘red’ compilation album plus all the other tracks from “Rubber Soul”.

EDITORIAL As I explained in the editorial of our previous Maccazine special: While doing research for McCartney’s latest studio record I started compiling a Timeline, just to find out when he had the time to work on the album. I started with Paul & Nancy’s wedding in early October 2011, because that was the time he also met producer Mark Ronson who was hired (for free) to DJ the reception party and I ended with the release of Only One, Macca’s collaboration with Kanye West on the last...

EDITORIAL The very start of 2015 brought us new music by Macca with the release of Only One, the song he composed ‘on the spot’ with rapper Kanye West. The song with words by Kanye and music by Paul is a tribute to West’s daughter North and is sung from the perspective of his late mother.
